Polar Express, The

Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard/arr. by Jerry Brubaker

 

The Polar Express is a suite of four tunes from the 2004 Christmas- themed film starring Tom Hanks. The movie, which employed motion capture computer-animation, is based on the popular children's book of the same title by Chris Van Allsburg. The songs are “Believe” which earned a Grammy, “The Polar Express”, “When Christmas Comes to Town” and “Spirit of the Season”. The music was composed by veteran movie music writers Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard, and arranged by Jerry Brubaker.
